, everybody, i'm bill hemmer, welcome to america us newsroom. martha: short weekend for us good to see you here, good morning, i'm martha mcoccasionum. one of the highest researchinging republicans in the house says if it is the only option, he will go along with the president. we're talking, of course, about house minority lead john boehner, he got a lot of attention over the weekend with this one, he says he will go for allowing the bush tax cuts to end just for the middle class if that's all he can get, even though he he and her republicans think it would be bad to raise the taxes on anybody. listen to this: >> if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. but i've been making the point now for months that we need to extend all the current rates for all americans, if we want to get our economy going again and we want to get jobs in america. >> so you are saying you would vote for the middle class tax cuts if that's all you can get done? >> if that's what we can get done, but i think that's bad policy. i don't think that's going to help our ec
'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board
and philosophy. we thank them all. time now for "ac 360." >>> thanks, larry. thanks for joining us. tonight, nine years after the attacks, why is osama bin laden still out there? why now do we seem more twidivi about an apprehensive over islam than nine years ago? how active a hunt for osama bin laden is it really? the answers might surprise you. >>> one on one with donald trump, he has a way out for the planners of islamic center. his way out is a buyout. they say they're not selling. is he taking no for an answer? stay tuned and hear it as only trump can tell it. >>> that huge gas fire in california. did warnings of a gas leak go unanswered? hear from a man who watched his neighborhood explode, his neighbors die and says none of this had to happen. >>> keeping them honest, with two thing that is haven't changed since the nine years on the attacks of new york and washington and in the heroic skies over pennsylvania. nine years later, we still haven't caught or killed the top leaders of al qaeda and nine years later, the president still has to remind americans that we're at the war against islami
in washington, thank you. >>> joining us now to talk about the primaries and what happens in november are democrat strategist tonya acker in los angeles and republican strategist dan bartlett in austin, texas. good morning to you both. >> good morning, harry. >> good morning. >> dan, let's talk about this. you got delaware. you got kentucky. you got alaska, utah. one after another after another. are all of the tea party victories good for the republican party? >> well, when you have a situation like with mike castle getting beat in delaware it gives you pause because it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for republicans now to gain that seat in the united states senate. having said that, though, harry, the intensity gap that we are seeing between the two parties this election cycle is mainly being fed by the tea party movement on the republican side so net-net it's still a gain. the prospect of taking over the house of representatives would not happen without this vibrant activity within the tea party so while you have the types of anomalies like we saw last night with mik
news deputy political director mark murray who joins us live from washington. let's break down what these results mean beginning in delaware. it was a huge tea party win, obviously. the question is, obviously, what will happen in the midterm? >> you know, richard, we just don't know right now. certainly the tea party has given republicans a jolt of enthusiasm and energy even in delaware. honestly, that's the republican party's biggest advantage heading into the midterm electrics. they're the ones who have the enthusiasm and the democrats don't. on the other hand, the tea party has given democrats an advantage in contests like delaware and kentucky and nevada where it's their candidates, the democratic candidates probably wouldn't have a chance to win or even be the favorites without the tea party candidates there. in delaware, for example, chris kuntz goes in as the fro front-runner in this contest. castle would have been the front-runner had he won. >> hey, mark, let's go to new york where we saw paladino come away with the winner there. >> that was just a shock. rick lazio has bee

for the first debate. jerry brown and meg whitman let us see their different viewpoints as they clashed on issues. claudine wong has more on last night's spirited debate. >> reporter: both candidates are claiming victory. both candidates went on the attack. both candidates tried to convince voters that they can handle this job. now, this debate at uc davis was the first of three debates. there's another one right around the corner. you can bet this is being picked apart. california certainly facing a lot of controversial issues from immigration to the death penalty to the budget crisis. all of that was on the table yesterday. whitman apologized for forgetting to vote in the past election, saying no one is more embarrassed than her. she did not apologize for putting $119 million of her own money in this campaign. >> the labor unions and jerry brown have been joined at the hip for 40 years. my view is putting jerry brown in charge of putting jerry brown -- of the unions is like putting count dracula in charge of the blood bank. >> reporter: people we spoke with say whitman appeared to be
paul joins us live. >>> and later why pennsylvania's governor is so embarrassed it comes down to this question, how would you feel if you found out government was spying on you, reporting you to local police as a potential threat just because you were taking part in a peaceful protest? it happened in pennsylvania. you won't believe some of the groups that got targeted. environment environmentalists, gays, lesbians, how it happened and who got stuck with the bill. >>> as always keeping them honest with an event that didn't have to happen, the huge egs ploegs in san bruno, california, that incinerated a neighborhood and killed at least four people. we've got new evidence tonight suggesting that this nightmare might have been preventible. the lives lost, the homes destroyed, the explosion and fireball so intense that first responders initially thought a jetliner had crashed. >> we've got multiple houses, we're trying to get close. we have extreme heat. we have possibly several blocks on fire at this time. >> call for fourth alarm for this. looks, it appears we have a plane down i
enemies are al qaeda and their allies, who are trying to kill us but have been -- have killed more muslims than just about anybody on earth. you know, we have to make sure that we don't start turning on each other. and i will do everything that i can as long as i am president of the united states to remind the american people that we are one nation under god and we may call that god different names but we remain one nation. >> as you know, he has tried to have this outreach to the muslim world. he is frustrated some of that hasn't worked out because of so much suspicion out there but also interesting that after he said look we are all one nation under god he quickly added, i use my christian faith to get me through as president. no doubt a reference to the fact that he's conscious of the fact there are some of these polls suggesting that some americans think he is muslim. he very clearly slipped that in there amid this conversation about islam. i'm a christian. >> it was also, i thought, the most clear message from the president this go round when he said before i said this clearly, i thou

us later this hour and talk exactly about that and explain what taxing the rich really means. and you may be surprised about how that all works out. and just to go on a point you were making yesterday, ryan, i think the biggest story about all these tax cuts is the pressure that president obama and his administration is going to feel from other democrats, not republicans. >> it's there. >> from democrats because now you have four senators who want to increase the tax cuts for the wealthy, for everyone and at least a dozen house democrats. so, you know, will that continue to grow as they move forward and want to be re-elected in november? that's what i think will be the biggest. >> for example, senator ben nelson says i think we should extend the bush tax cuts. senator michael bennett of colorado, same thing. joe lieberman, evan bahn, ken conrad, among the house members, bobby bright of alabama, jim heinz of connecticut. jerry connolly of virginia. gary peters of ohio so the president today will tee off on john boehner and he's going to tee off on republicans. these guys and these wome
